STATES' ROLE IN THE UTILIZATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES
Federal legislation enacted over the past years delegates responsibility for implementation of our national environmental policy to the states. In a variety of environmental areas the states have taken the initiative and are instituting comprehensive programs accompanied by appropriate standards and effective enforcement procedures. Via federal directives and their own actions, state governments are therefore assuming a critical role in the formulation and implementation of our national environmental goals. The authority to establish the necessary administrative and regulatory agencies to implement environmental policy resides with both the legislative and executive branches of government.
